Shirts for a super skinny boy

My ds2 is tall and thin. I cannot find shirts that fit him well. He can still wear like a 4t if it were long enough. Does anyone know where to find shirts that are slim cut and long enough as well as long enough in the sleeves if long sleeved?

Re: Shirts for a super skinny boy

Children's Place and Carters tend to be longer and leaner. Their girls' shirts are, anyway. I'm not sure about for boys. I mean, my son is thin, and the shirts fit him, but he's not what I would call skinny. My girls, though, are skinny.

I will check those out. I haven't bought anything from either place in a while. He is 52 inches tall and weighs 48 pounds. He wears 8 slim jeans for the length and those are still too big around for him. Thanks!

I think American Apparel. It runs small (size up), but it is also quite slim. Mini Boden runs pretty slim and so does Gap, to a lesser extent. My son is 25th in weight, 50th in height and the one place I am steering clear of for him is Hanna Andersson for sure.

For my daughter (tall and slim) I got her plain cotton Pajama tops from Lands End that were a larger size and a bit tight and that worked pretty well for a year.

My DS has the same body type and I have luck with Carter's and OshKosh.
